As some of you may have seen, we are once again raising money for LLGS as a Gift for Gatiss. It’s Marks birthday coming up and we want to give something back.
We like being pro-active so, just as we did last year we’re holding a charity auction.
Yep, have you ever wanted to commission a piece of art, or a fic? Now maybe your chance.
But first we need something to auction! If your an artist, writer, photoshopper or podficcer that would be willing to donate your skills to help raise money then please keep reading.
We are not controlling this in any way, it is for you to decide what you’re willing to offer. If your willing to offer one 221b drabble, 5 poems, 3 gif sets, 2 photoshop edits or 1 podfic reading then that’s awesome. Whatever your willing to give, we’re happy to auction off.
You can specify before the auction exactly what your offering and anything you will or won’t do.
Once signups are over there will be an auction site created where people can bid on the skills on offer. Once the bid is over, winners will be required to make the winning bid as a donation and the you will be given the URL of the winner.
It’s then down to the you and winner to discuss the commission piece, taking into account what the winner wants and what your happy to produce.
We will make it clear that there is no time limit on when commissions must be finished, we don’t want to pressure anyone, this is just a fun way to raise money for an awesome charity. For those concerned the finished work will not be linked on the birthday blog so there will be no chance of Mark seeing it.
I’m hoping to run the auction on the weekend beginning 11th so signups will be closing on the 8th October.
If you’d like to take part we need you to fill in the form under the cut, either on the provided link or via our email address.
